Sarita has resumed competing without a protective mask after announcing two months ago that she was stricken with facial paralysis.
The TNA Knockout competed sans mask at last Sunday’s Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre event in Guadalajara, Mexico; she appeared the same physically as she did before the health scare.
TNA’s storyline explanation for the Mexican America star suddenly donning a protective mask on the July 14 episode of IMPACT Wrestling was that she had broken her orbital bone and jaw during a parking lot brawl with Miss Tessmacher and Tara.
Meanwhile, “Dr. Lucha” Steve Sims, who has extensively covered lucha libre for several years, and Figure Four Weekly editor Bryan Alvarez, both stated on recent episodes of the Figure Four Daily podcast that they were very skeptical over her claim of facial paralysis since she continued to wrestle in spite of her debilitating condition.
